The second act rehearsing for today is Iceland, represented by Diljá and her song “Power”.
Who is Diljá?
Diljá Pétursdóttir, better known simply as Diljá, was born in 2002 in Kópavogur in the Capital Region of Iceland. She first gained attention after competing in the second series of Ísland Got Talent in 2015. Off-stage, Diljá is a physiotherapy student and a committed CrossFit athlete. A self-proclaimed ‘Eurovision nerd’, it’s always been Diljá’s dream to represent her nation at the Contest.
Unfortunately this year, accredited journalists don’t get the chance to watch the first and second rehearsals, so we only get the information and content that the organizers officially release to the public.
Diljá has huge stage presence and an infectious energy, and the biggest power she has is in that extraordinary voice. She’s dressed in silver, in the second rehearsal, she changed her earings.
As we know from the previous rehearsal, she’s moving around a lot, covering the whole stage with high kicks and gymnastic moves – it’s a really compelling combination of vocal and physical strength, that feels like nothing else at Eurovision this year. We also haven’t seen a lot of drum ‘n’ bass at Eurovision over the years, and now we’d like more please.
Below you can watch a small clip from the Icelandic second rehearsal, once it’s published on YouTube:
The Dress Rehearsal for Iceland and the rest of Semi Final 2 will be held on the 10th of May.
